2:35pm // Vasileios Balampanos // Riot CGI

VR and the human brain. Are we ready yet for this old technology?

VR has been around since the seventies for research, medical and military applications. The democratization of VR technology that happened in the last few years brought us face to face with a rather strange challenge. It often appears that our physiology is standing in the way of allowing us to experience this immersive platform to its full potential. Do we accept that VR is not for everybody or there is something that can be done?
